I need to make a table, but one that uses text with in, not numbers.  How do
I go about this?
Thanks

Hi,
You do the same as in any other table i.e. make a nested list and wrap it by Grid, but put strings as the elements of the list. Below find a table with some styling containing both text cells, cells with numbers and empty ones that I did for my own purpose. Evaluate this:

tableSkinTempNeutral1 = {{"Segment",
    Column[{"Skin temperature", "thin leotard [\[Degree]C]"}],
    Column[{"Skin temperature", "office clothing [\[Degree]C]"}] },
   {"Forehead", 35.8, 34.2},
   {"Cheek", 35.2, "  "},
   {"Front neck", 35.8, ""},
   {"Back neck", 35.4, ""},
   {"Chest", 35.1, 34.5},
   {"Back", 35.3, 34.4},
   {"Abdomen", 35.3, 34.9},
   {"Upper arm", 34.2, 33.5}};

Panel@Grid[tableSkinTempNeutral1, Frame -> All,
  Dividers -> Directive[Gray, Thickness[4]],
  ItemSize -> {Automatic, 2},
  Background -> {None, {LightYellow, {LightBlue, LightOrange}},
    1 -> LightYellow}]


You may also play with Style statements. That is instead of, say, "Forehead" you put Style["Forhead",12,Red,Bold], and so on.

Hope this helps, have fun, Alrexei
